I am very appauled.

On PetSmart's website, I just saw a Betta starter kit for 2 Betta fish with a divider.


It is half a gallon. No heater, no filter.

So each fish gets what, 0.025? That is horrible.

I saw those actually shopping at PetSmart last night. I couldn't believe it either. There are people stupid enough to use it though. Not that they have low IQ stupid, they are just ignorant. And ignorance is NOT bliss. :(

I see fish in those all the time. To make things worse, they had a huge moss ball in there. The poor baby couldn't even turn around.

You seen people keep them with a divider!? o.o oh dear. I haven't seen them in use but for a store that sells them, people will buy. People put all kinds of trust into pet stores.

Oh yes. They had the whole thing set up and for sale. Divided, too.

Each Betta wasn't apparently even worthy of half a gallon.

Now, I had a male that lived in one of those before. He had no aeration, but I put a little heater in there. And he got 50% water change at least everyday. if not a full 100% when I got wiser abit later. Anyhow, I had moved Blaze into a 5 gallon, with a heater, some aeration. and he FLIPPED. moved him back into his little home like this, happy as could be. blew bubbles all the time, ate better, and was active. But I do agree, as a rule these are not good unless you change the water daily, it's a bad thing for your fish. And to divide it, is bad.

I know, but this thing is DIVIDED.

And you should have left him in the 5 gallon. He would have gotten used to it and thrived.
